About this item

Gazerani introduces for the first time the Sistani Cycle of Epics (SCE) to scholarship. She argues that the epic literature of Iran is a kind of historiography that reveals ancient events, a whole cycle of stories that has not been studied before. She examines the interrelationship of history and literature and states that her goal is not to separate fact from fiction, but to observe the ways in which the genre as a whole narrates the past.
